Riding on its successful performance two years ago as Asia’s leading exhibition of wood processing solutions for the furniture sector, the biennial Vietnam International Woodworking Industry Fair (VietnamWood) will be back on the stage with greater momentum on Oct. 18-21.
At its 12th edition this year, VietnamWood has incorporated concerted efforts from the co-organizers, Ministry of Industry & Trade – Vietnam National Trade Fair & Advertising Company (VINEXAD) and Yorkers Trade & Marketing Service Co., Ltd., while also gaining solid support from relevant government agencies as well as domestic and international industrial associations.
VietnamWood will see more than 320 exhibitors from 25 countries and regions using record gross exhibition space of over 20,000 square meters (including outdoor exhibition halls). Exclusively endorsed by European Federation of Woodworking Machinery Manufacturers (Eumabois) and officially supported by Binh Duong Furniture Associations (BIFA) and Vietnam Timber and Forest Product Association (VIETFORES), the trade fair has proved a highly professional and fruitful platform for business exchanges between exhibitors and trade visitors in the woodworking sector.
